33 killed, 22 injured in Kashmir road accident

Jammu, July 1, 2019-

Twenty 33 people were killed and 22 injured on Monday in a road accident in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar district, police sources said.

The incident happened when a mini bus from Keshwan village headed to Kishtwar town went out of the driver’s control and plunged into a deep gorge. Senior civil, police and army officers have rushed to the spot.

Relief and rescue operation is underway and the injured are being shifted to hospital, the sources said.

Overloading, over-speeding and dilapidated road conditions have caused tragic accidents in the hills of Doda, Kishtwar, Rajouri and Poonch districts in the past as well.

On June 27, 11 students of a private computer training institute were killed in a tragic accident in Pir Ki Gali area of the Mughal Road that connects the Rajouri-Poonch districts in the Jammu division.

Following this accident, authorities in Poonch district have banned all excursions by educational institutions unless specifically allowed by the district administration.  (Agency)
